Review: Sick in the Head by Alexander Gustafsson


Sick in the Head is an 80-page, B&W, humor horror comic for mature readers written and illustrated by Alexander Gustafsson.

A film producer past his prime and his gun toting nephew find themselves up against the supernatural when their latest lesbian vampire flick takes a turn for the weird! While filming and arguing with an apprehensive actress, an unexpected fanged fiend crashes the set with a hunched backed henchman and undead killer in tow! Soon the line between the real and celluloid worlds blurs as mayhem ensues, big breasted vampires get poked with wood, and body parts began to fly! This ain’t your normal horror movie comic spoof, this is Sick in the Head!

Alexander does a great job of making fun of traditional horror movie tropes while telling an original story loaded with giggle worthy gore and brutal bustle! The story takes some really unexpected turns that gives Sick in the Head a fresh and marked departure from many other comics that fall into predictable territory. Everything from the underlining concept driving the plot to the cartoonish art come off as crisp and different. This is a fun and silly story for grownups!
